Trading spreads: A leg-up options strategy

event access_time


Options spreads are positions with two or more “legs” that, when combined, can be created for bull, bear, and even neutral markets. Spreads have the advantage of being more flexible than individual option positions, allowing traders to adjust for varying degrees of risk, reward, and probability. In this session, learn how to get started trading spreads with two basic strategies: bull call spreads and bear put spreads.
